Brighton Toy Museum
Go back to your childhood and enjoy showcase collections from the last hundred years at this magical museum. It is a treasure trove of toys and models that young and old can enjoy.
See Steiff’s Peter Rabbit and George the Bear and then try your hand at some good old-fashioned penny arcade games. You could also look though a working mutoscope, an early motion picture device.
See tin plate toys, cars and buses, exotic toy and model ships, trams and large-scale radio-controlled aeroplanes. There is even a Punch and Judy booth there.
Enjoy looking at beautiful dolls and a doll’s house with rare doll’s furniture. Younger children will definitely delight in these, and the farm and circus play sets in the museum. If that is not enough, enjoy looking at a large selection of Meccano, an extensive collection of model trains, locomotives and accessories, some of which are the only known surviving examples in the world.
If you are ever in Brighton, a visit to this museum, with over four thousand square feet of floor space, is a must.
